The ANCOLD Tailings Dam Operators Forum will be held 24-26 of August 2022. The Organising committee and the ANCOLD Executive welcomes everybody to the premier event for tailings operators to be held in Orange NSW.
The Organising committee and the ANCOLD Executive are particularly grateful to the sponsors that have committed to this event this year and we are looking forward to making this event a “Must-do” training and networking event for all tailings dam operators in 2022.
We are still accepting abstracts/summaries from those who are interested in presenting and encourage Operators to share their experiences. The site visit of Cadia and North Parkes Tailings Dams will be a highlight and something all tailings dam operators will be interested in, given the size and the different management technologies that are being used at these sites.
This forum is for operators to share experiences (good and bad) rather than a technical/engineering focused conference. It aims to provide recognised training for tailings dam operators (optional Cert III) and knowledge sharing to improve your tailings knowledge network.
Tailings management attracts extremely passionate people, and this forum invites like-minded attendees to participate in an open environment to benefit from others’ successes and learnings. This national forum aims to bring together the ‘front line’ of tailings dams to openly discuss their experiences with the outcome of improving awareness of tailings management systems and operational safety.
Located in Orange NSW, attendees will enjoy the country atmosphere set within a scenic farming and wine growing area. Orange and Parkes are also home to largest block cave mines and large tailings storage facilities which will be the focus of the second day site tour.
The Organising Committee will continue to monitor the latest available advice regarding COVID-19 from State and Federal Governments leading up to the event.
We are looking forward to hearing about your Tailings Operation, so please join us in Orange in August 2022.
